As you may have heard tonight, due to a change in the advice from the NRL’s medical and bio security experts, the 2020 NRL season has been suspended effective immediately. This means that our players will not attend training from tomorrow and our next scheduled game against North Queensland Cowboys has been postponed.
There is a meeting scheduled for 9:00am at the NRL tomorrow to understand the key next steps and to better understand the impact of today’s decision. Once we have further information, I will provide an update on our Club’s position.
As I said yesterday, everyone in our community is facing a challenge that no one could have been prepared for, and we understand as a Club and community that the priority at this time is to follow the recommendations from the health experts and support our friends, colleagues and families.
Everyone involved in our Club is proud to work for our organisation and most importantly serve you - our Members and supporters. We will meet this challenge head on and I am sure that we as a Club will come through the other side and ensure the Parramatta Eels remain at the forefront of our game and community for years to come.
Stay safe, and thank you again for your support.
Go the Eels,
